J’ai pris un peu de temps pour pondre cette deuxième sélection. Au moment où tout le monde fait son bilan d’une année finalement pas si terrible que ça, j’ai retenu quelques nouvelles productions qui ont rythmé ma fin d’année. Moins purple (et donc sûrement moins droguée que la précédente), cette sélection Purple Sounds est sûrement un peu plus bizarre et toujours aussi subjective. Au moment où quelqu’un s’est fait tatouer Drake sur la visage ( photo ), on comprend effectivement que 2012 risque de passer un cap apocalyptique assez effrayant. On commence avec Nacho Picasso , dont [...]
Newcomers, giants, throwbacks, and collaborators -- 2011 was the year of diversity, in which rap fans were faced with enough variety to find whatever flavor of hip-hop they wanted. Artist: Action Bronson Album: Dr. Lecter Label: Fine Fabric Delegates Image: http://www.popmatters.com/imag es/reviews_art/a/action_bronso n.jpg Display Width: 200 Display as: List List number: 10Action BronsonDr. Lecter Action Bronson must rap about food more than any MC in the history of the game. The burly Queens-based, ethnically Albanian rapper does love his grub, working as a chef when not rhyming; both worlds frequently collide, like when he put out a mixtape in 2010 [...]
Bronsolino's "Brunch" should be more disturbing. In the video, he meticulously disposes of a woman's corpse, but there's a strange levity to it. Maybe it's the sunny weather or pristine lake where he dumps the body. Maybe it's Bronson's demeanor - the big doughy rapper is more Galifianakis than Lecter. Or maybe it's just the easy-going soundtrack of casual raps and a cozy psych rock sample. Action Bronson is such a likeable murderer that it's easy to laugh at his 'whoop' after the body hits the water.
To me, Action Bronson is known for a few things: Sounding a little like Ghostface Killah, loving food , and being down with Mayhem Lauren . I've never thought of the guy as a killer, though. But that's the angle being played up in his latest video, "Brunch." I guess love makes broads make bros do crazy things, or something like that. Honestly, did anybody else laugh when he said "scunt"? ACTING! / via /
I try to let Action Bronson speak for himself.
The more I hear tracks off Action Bronson's latest LP Dr. Lector , the more I dig the dude. Yes, he has a similar voice and delivery to Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah , but let's stop the comparison now before it gets overdone. Actually, its probably too late as that is what all people talk about, and I'm guilty of it too. Moving on, for the song "Brunch" Action Bronson is showing us why ladies shouldn't mess with him. Definitely pick up this LP if you haven't, its solid. Watch "Brunch" below. [...]

After seeing that both Eminem and Action Bronson recently released some murderous videos today, it reminded me of one of my favorite scenes from True Romance . Check both clips out now. Eminem "Space Bound" Action Bronson "Brunch"
@actionbronson can do no wrong. some thoughts after watching this video: 1) i need a pair of those sunglasses he is wearing on the boat scene. 2) is it gay for me to envy another man's sunglasses? answer: maybe. 3) i would never bury a body in a lake or pond.. seems like the easiest way to get caught. the only way to properly bury a body is to bury it at sea.. i.e. bin laden's fake burial. 4) i can relate to this video due to the fact i've stared in the [...]

In the latest video from his LP Dr. Lecter , Ghostface Killah Action Bronson shows us how he gets down with ladies who double cross him. Shout to Flushing, Queens. Directed by Tom Gould and Alexander Richter. Dr. Lecter now in stores wherever good music is sold drink the kool aid:
Action Bronson reminds me a lot of Ghostface with his delivery and overall demeanor. I first heard of him a few months back when he drop a record named after famed "preliminary bum" Barry Horowitz, and have been seeing more and more of him in the time since. This video for "Brunch" is truly fresh, and directed by Alexander Richter. Bronson takes care of an ex-girlfriend in the worst way possible, over smooth jazz production from Tommy Mas . Watch it below.
Action Bronson’s version of “Brunch” doesn’t involve eggs and orange juice. Instead, his mid-morning refreshment features a long drive upstate, unexplained body rolled up in a carpet like pigs-in-a-blanket with an assist from directors Tom Gould and Alexander Richter. You see, something bad went down for Bronsalino. So instead of enjoying the nice meal he’s preparing, he’s got to take a girl who’s shuffled off her mortal coil to a final, watery resting place. But it’s an enjoyable trip for us viewers tagging along for the ride, set to the strains of Tommy Mas’ guitar-laced instrumental, [...]
As he portrays across his March release, Dr. Lecter , Action Bronson has an equal fondness for professional wrestling and fine dining. The latter is especially on display here in "Brunch," the latest set of visuals from the Flushing, N.Y. rapper. Well, sort of. Like his influences Ghostface Killah and Kool G Rap, Bronson uses some of his favorite things as complementary devices. If that wasn't clear on the album version of the track, it's particularly obvious in its gruesome video that starts out with the bearded MC enjoying a meal before he, err, gets to work. [...]
